In Mathematica, color (RGBColor) is determined by a set of three
to four real values from 0 to 1. The fourth value is the alpha
channel (opacity) and defaults to 1 when only r,g,b values are given.

=46or millions of colors, each channel is normally represented as
an 8-bit value. So, here is an example of converting a
Mathematica RGBColor to 8-bits per channel

In[4]:= Round[255 List @@ ColorData[1][1]]

Out[4]= {63,61,153}

This particular color is the default color used by Plot and
ListPlot when plotting a single curve or data set.
